day 2058 – obyf reunion

finally meeting up with the our balls your face gang at eastside craft house to celebrate our belated spirit owl championship. there wasn’t much to choose from on the menu to stick with my keto diet so i went with the grilled chicken salad. we had plenty of food and lots of good laughs. it seems like majority of the team is intending to return next season and somehow talked me into returning as well. i love this team, but i’m just iffy about playing in another tier 1 playoffs again

day 1747 – spirit owl

hootie the spirit owl is once again in the hands of gstrings. we are well on our way to defend our third eastside craft house gift card. this playoff, we have a good chance at the title and i had set my eyes on the tier five wrench. things didn’t unfold the way we wanted to; we started off on the wrong foot and got swept on our first series. we dug deep, rallied as a team and made it a lengthy playoff. we clawed back series after series and made it one game short of going through the back door finals. though i’m disappointed we didn’t come out as champs, we certainly fought like one. i’m proud of these ladies for not giving in when we easily could have called it quits. this officially closes the books for season twenty five, a comeback season for me

day 1593 – hootie

back to back season winning the spirit owl with gstrings. we uphold to being a highly spirited team in regular season and that’s no different at playoffs. an early exit wasn’t what we expected but we came out of our zone and my team knows it. the hardest part of being on the sideline while my team was on the brink of elimination is knowing i could step in to help but at the same time, couldn’t. if doctors gave me the nod, i would have in a heartbeat,  risked everything to play in a splint and have it taped so all surrounding joints are immobilized. at some point i just realized people are right and i need to take it easy at the right moment. regardless, i still wanted to be there for my team

day 1376 – our birthdays

this sunday was all about gstring playoffs, taekwondo and birthday dinner. a really bad fall gave me a scare because a rib out caused breathing and talking troubles. my chiropractor did not want me to continue playing, but being me and being playoffs, that wasn’t going to happen. thinking back, i made a reckless decision but it was something i would have risked for my team. it would have been nice to take both spirit owl and tier champ but kudos for making it to finals. our birthday celebration finally happened because i’ve had a crazy busy all of last week. fine dining at the apron with korean spicy wings, salmon with quinoa and seafood linguine
